With the NHL pausing the 2019-20 regular season on March 12 due to the concerns surrounding the coronavirus, NHL.com is taking stock of each of the League's 31 teams.

Today, a look at three memorable moments for the Ottawa Senators at the pause:

 

Boro Cop to the rescue

Mark Borowiecki lived up to his Boro Cop nickname Dec. 1.

The Ottawa Senators defenseman stymied a robbery in Vancouver on an off day before they played the Vancouver Canucks on Dec. 3.

 

Tkachuks face off

Referee Wes McCauley wasn't going to let the Senators and Calgary Flames square off without the Tkachuk brothers taking the opening draw.

McCauley kicked each starting center out of the circle, letting forward Brady Tkachuk of the Senators take the opening face-off against Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk on Feb. 24.

 

White uses his head

All that pregame soccer apparently went to Colin White's head.

The Senators center lit up social media when he head-butted the puck in for an apparent goal that was disallowed against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Jan. 4.
